Social Protection for addressing Climate Risks: What are the Linkages?
Organizer: Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre
|Social protection (SP) has been proposed as a policy instrument of direct relevance to deal with emerging climate-related risks and vulnerabilities. This session will explore what is the current state of evidence in using SP for managing climate risks, and critically discuss its role in the role in the long term. The session will involve brief talks, discussions, break out groups and cartoon annotations. The objective of the session is to leave the audience with an understanding of the different aspects to keep in mind when considering SP for climate related risks.
